Guyer completed only 15 of 34 passes for 224 yards. But in the first half against Marshall, he showed that he can throw accurately. He completed 6 of 8 passes, including six in a row for 98 yards.
Guyer’s 35-yard toss down the seam to Josh Nelson was a key play in the second touchdown drive. When that drive seemed stalled, Guyer showed he can take a hit. His pass to the end zone was dropped on fourth down, but a Marshall player hit him late and hard for a roughing the passer penalty.
Guyer got up and handed off twice to McCrory, the second one for a touchdown.
Linebackers Nelson and McCrory led a defense that allowed a few first downs and 104 total yards but no big plays. Marshall quarterback Dari’Juan Stroud faced a lot of pressure and completed only 6 of 12 passes for 51 yards.
